Maps

Everybody's joining in on the hoopla, throwing in their two cents about how this lady is (to quote Steely Dan Jethro Tull), "thick as a brick." Now I enjoy watching beautiful people making complete idiots out of themselves as much as the next guy, but if I had to throw an alternate theory out there it would be that Miss South Carolina's a genius, or at least advanced in the knowledge of how to prolong that 15 minutes of fame. She did the shit on purpose.

I think:
1.) She realizes that she probably won't win the damn competition anyway.
2.) She realizes that in terms of media exposure, sheer stupidity trumps intelligence nine out of oh... nine times.
3.) Dunkin Donuts has got great coffee.

I can't say I blame her. You know those "person on the street" interviews that Jay Leno does where he asks questions like, "Who was the first president of the US". The people who answer George Washington Carver, or Abraham Lincoln, these are the people who "get it". I'll bet dollars to donuts (or cups of java from dunkin donuts) that she's on a reality t.v. show in six months. If not, then in a year (just as the last person in the country is forgetting about her) she'll take the Paris Hilton route a la "One Night in South Carolina".

I don't think it was an intentional "Chicken of the Sea is made out of Chicken" gaffe, but most certainly somebody got through to her that there was a lot of fame and fortune waiting her if she was willing to step up and do the "oops media" circuit of contrition.

She could laugh all the way to the bank... assuming she could find her way there and have somebody else fill out the deposit slip for her.

P.S. as your first ever commenter, Curtis, blogger tradition holds that you owe me one non-sexual favor to be claimed on the occasion of your daughter's wedding.

Just a reminder. Read your Blogger by-laws carefully before you check that terms-of-service box..

DAMN! They told me to read between the fine lines, but I never knew or believed it until now. Shit. Welcome to the fold chief.

So I snickered hard when I saw your comment as you saw right through me! But it worked! I got a huge spike in traffic to my blog today! And you came by, how cool is that? So I'm laughing at your humor and will definitely be stopping by.

Ciao!
